“Music almost broke us up,” Christian Brandt recalls. Passion cuts both ways. However, for Christian and Sarah Brandt, it’s largely been an invigorating experience. Christian Brandt all but gave up on music. Regularly falling victim to the trappings of the music industry, he felt out of control surrounded by the excesses of alcohol and drugs too easily available at many turns. That all changed once he met Sarah.
One of the silent strengths of online dating draws from the impeccable ability of algorithms to bring together two people, whom may or may not be a perfect romantic match for each other, into a connection across multiple levels of intimacies. That’s initially what happened to Sarah and Christian.
Sarah, a singer songwriter spending her time performing all around the Philly area, found soulful cathartic cause in writing emphatic tunes, bonding to her audience’s moods. Christian, on the other hand, grew up with music from an early age. He started practicing when he was just 5, and found a way to play in every potential capacity, including stints at the Stone Pony in Ashbury Park to the Philadelphia Philharmonic.
They’re a couple whose marriage built itself on the humble chords pieced together by their collaborative mindsets. Staying true to their faith, they embody a deep sense of spiritualism. “Playing music is a spiritual act,” Sarah added, noting her desire to convey hope with every song.
For his part, Christian’s background enables this two piece operation to operate in a much grandeur sound. From his production work, he’s able to layer in preloaded tracks for shows, allowing the duo to cover all of the bases required for a four piece band.
